Bourbon raffle raises $250,000 for tuition aid

The Catholic Education Foundation’s second annual online bourbon raffle has raised $250,000.

The proceeds will provide tuition assistance to families for the coming school year, according to a press release from the foundation.

Twenty individuals were named winners in a drawing that was live-streamed June 1. The prizes are 96 bottles of rare bourbon.

Richard A. Lechleiter, president of the CEF, said, “This event alone will create a Catholic education experience for over 200 students whose families can’t afford it. We can’t wait to do it even bigger and better next year.”For more information about the CEF, visit
